I finally spoke to a person at the 888-269-0182 phone number by the name of Francis on 2/6/06. I explained to Francis the situation. Francis claimed the number I had called was to 'Grand Getaways'. I explained that I had obtained this number from the BBB, that it was listed as an alternate number for MVI. Francis stated the MVI was no longer in business. I inquired 'since when'? He stated that MVI closed on Fri, 2/3/06. I asked if the company 'Grand Getaways' was affiliated with MVI. He said 'no'. I asked if Michael Burkes (President/CEO of MVI) was associated with them, he said 'no longer'. We have have not been able to contact anyone at MVI via telephone since Fri, 2/3/06. Apparently, the information received from Francis is accurate, that MVI has indeed closed their business.
There are two points that disturb me most: 1_ They had intentionally tried to get our money on the last day of their business being open. To me, that constitutes intentional fraud and I would expect that there should be some criminal charges that derive from this. Perhaps a class action law suit? 2_ Rip-Off Report nearly had me convinced that this was a business in good standing. If this owner/CEO is such a stand-up guy why haven't we heard from him? I would not base any decisions on Rip-Off Reports alone!
